Another day Cooking / I could get used to this

I said in my previous post it was my son's Birthday next week and I asked him what he would like for his Birthday, well he surprised me by saying he would like some homemade cakes and cookies so, today that's what I have been doing.

I nearly have his package ready to go tomorrow, just waiting for the last batch of cookies to come out.
I managed to make him 30 Chocolate Brownie slices this was a Mary Berry recipe which has never disappointed me so far, I also made him 2 dozen little choc chip buns and then the most amazing Peanut Butter Cookies from Marie's recipe over at the English Kitchen, my son inlaw has just had a taste and did not believe I had made them so they must be good
I did not add the sugar at the end on mine

The recipe given was for 4 dozen but I must of made mine a bit smaller as I managed to get 5 dozen, sorry but the light is not that good in the evening
I hope he enjoys his Birthday tea

Honey Glazed Granola Doughnut

I decided to have a rest from paper crafting today and decided to bake
I have recently found a wonderful blog full of delicious recipes called   The English Kitchen

We are off out this eve to a late bonfire party and I have made this to take with us
I even made the granola which by the way tasted glorious with yogurt this morning

Marie's recipe is for single donuts but as I did not have a donut pan I decided to use a large pan with
a hole in the middle and it worked a treat.   I can't wait to try this



You can find the recipe here
